2015 Is Off To A Great Start!

This year is off to a busy start! Many pairs of moccasins, both adult and baby, have been made. I also learned how to bead moccasins, and both pairs of moccasins that I sent to Manitobah Mukluks sold! Each pair sold within a day apart, so now it is time to send more:)

I am so full of love and gratitude!

Buffalo Leather Moccasins

I have a new favourite pair of moccasins!

I am in love with the new buffalo hides I purchased! When the holidays ended I was ecstatic to finally have time to cut into the Peanut hide, and make a pair of moccasins.

This leather is thick and durable. It was tougher to cut and sew (I have the cuts and blisters on my hands to prove it!) but worth the extra work.

I think these make a handsome pair of moccasins. The fringe can be omitted for anyone craving a less flashy look.

I love that my work can be so portable. I sewed these at a coffee shop in town while I waited for a hair appointment. 

If you are looking for a strong, durable pair of moccasins, that are also fashionable, you can find these in my shop. I love making custom orders, so feel free to send me a message with any questions you may have. 

Happy New Year! I hope this is your best year EVER!!

My Exciting News!

Okay, so I hinted that these two lovely mocc's above were headed somewhere exciting.

Here is the news! Manitobah Mukluks has accepted my moccasins into their Storyboot Project!!!! What does that mean? It means that I sent them my two pairs of moccasins, they photographed, listed and will sell my moccasins on their website, and when they sell my moccasins, 100% of the sale comes to me! They do this as a way to give back to the community and support Native Artists! Not only that, but they adjusted the price on my moccasins by increasing the price $30 each. They told me they are on a mission to educate the public that moccasin making is an art not just a craft and therefore my moccasin prices needed to be increased to value the artistic quality of them. How incredible is this?!

I am feeling so grateful and fortunate for this opportunity!

Today, the moccasins have been listed. I took a quick screen shot of each to share with you. Here they are:

You can find them by visiting the Storyboot Project on Manitobah Mukluks website, and scroll through all the beautiful and amazing works of art for your feet.

To List or Not to List, That is My Question.

I can't quite decide if I want to list this dress in my shop or not. It is way different then what I usually make and is more time consuming, but it is also gorgeous!!!

I originally made this dress for a giveaway I joined because I wanted to make something different and stand out. It was a challenge at first, but I love the results. Today I completed the dress for the winner from the giveaway (poor women has been waiting since November, but I was swamped with Christmas!! I do feel awful!)

I thought it would make a beautiful flower girl dress.

It is made from the amazing Figgy's Pattern Scirocco Dress if you would like to make one of your own.

My favourite feature, the twisted back.

These AMAZING photos were taken by the talented Forty Toes Photography and modelled by her gorgeous daughter.

Something Warm and Cozy

These warm and cozy hoodies are coming to my shop. They are completely lined with fleece and made from upcycled thrifted sweatshirts. A zip front for easy on and off with front pockets for storing all their treasures.  They will be custom order only, and as always, one of a kind.

My boys wear theirs everyday, and say they feel like wearing a blanket, or a hug.

The Elephant is up for grabs and can be found here: Elephant Hoodie

Adult Moccasin Pre Sale

So I love these moccasins! I can't stop making them and have quite the collection!

I have ordered two sheets of rubber soling for the moccasins, and I thought it would be fun to have a special pre-sale offer while we wait for the soles to arrive. That way I can make up the moccasins while I wait for the soles to be delivered and then attach the soles to the moccasins and send them off to be enjoyed by other lovely people, AND offer the moccasins at a great price! Deep breath!

These will be available for the special pre-sale price of $95 on the first 6 pairs ordered. After that the moccasins will be available for $120. So if you are looking for a great pair of handmade leather moccasins, at a great price, quickly head over to my shop and order a pair!
